As part of our work with the UK Parliament to create the fantastic Parliament Square display for the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta, we are showcasing each of the flags created by school children from throughout the country. This flag design comes from Inver Primary School, Cromartyshire.
Region: Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross
Position: 54 (See Parliament Square map)

“We thought about what our constituency looked like and used this as the inspiration for our flag. The blue represents the sky and the lochs, the brown is the hills and mountains and the green the farming land that surrounds our school.
We worked together as a whole class of 18 children to share our ideas and think what our area meant to us. We all agreed that the thistle was the main symbol of Scotland and that as we are part of Scotland it should be included. We all designed and made our own individual flags but Zoe’s design (Primary 5) was chosen as our favourite.”
